KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- During the second stage of a simulated emergency, known as Mode 4, a helicopter leaves with an "injured" astronaut while others are being monitored in the triage area, set up at Helipad 8, located near the fire station between Launch Pads 39A and 39B. The emergency exercise began on Launch Pad 39A. The participants were helped off the pad and taken to the triage site. The KSC rescue teams are practicing emergency procedures in the unlikely scenario of a...

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. - On a radar site on North Merritt Island, Fla., part of the structure for the support base for a 50-foot C-band radar antenna is put in position. The radar will be used for Shuttle missions to track the launches and observe possible debris coming from the Shuttle. It will be used for the first time on STS-114. The launch window for the first Return to Flight mission is July 13 to July 31.
